The Migration Automation Toolkit (MAT) is a collection of PowerShell scripts that will automate VM conversions. This version of MAT is powered by NetApp's Project Shift (which are powershell cmdlets found in NetApp's Data ONTAP PowerShell Toolkit version 3.0.1). Like the orginal MAT it is back-ended by a SQL instance (SQL Express will work). MAT (powered by Project Shift) is able to convert VMs at incredible speeds. Most VMs are fully converted in under 5 mins so that even customers with very small service windows can use the toolkit.

 

 MAT (powered by Project Shift) aka MAT4Shift has been taken over by the NetApp team, please use the URL in the download file to access it.
